I just discovered that somebody shot videos of the some of the seminars from the SurferJoe Festival 2014, so you can now learn everything about playing surf music directly from Dusty, Lorenzo, Dave and last but not least Mr. Paul Johnson himself. Enjoy!

For the first time Ralf Kilauea of the German Kilaueas band and Lorenzo Surfer Joe got together to produce some original surf music! We are talking about a 7" split of 4 tracks, pure surf music fun mood with Lorenzo Surfer Joe on drums and guitars, Ralf on guitars and Tom Kilauea as guest on bass.
The digital release on CDBaby.com and other usual channels is on JUNE 15 while the actual little vinyl record will be available hopefully at the Surfer Joe Summer Festival or the end of the month.
The songs titles are surely funny, but the songs have been produced with serious attention and great great sound! Also these songs will only be available with this EP release exclusively, both Ralf and Lorenzo are not planning to include these tracks in any future albums.
Get ready to spend some more $$$ for surf music! FENDERONI DIAVOLOOOOOOOOOOOO
I am happy now to announce the release of the first Surfer Joe solo album, ready by August 1st and for sale starting at the SG101 convention this summer.
SENOR SURF - Surfer Joe
The album includes 12 tracks, 9 of them previously unreleased. One of the tracks is a bonus recorded by Paul Johnson & friends on past October that will not be included in the upcoming EP of them, featuring Paul Johnson on guitar and Lorenzo on drums. All the otehr tracks feature Lorenzo Surfer Joe on guitars and drums. It is recorded 100% ANALOG (recording, mixing, mastering) at Circo Perrotti Studio in Gijon, Spain. Produced by Lorenzo Valdambrini and Jorge Explosion for Surfer Joe Music. Unique vintage Telefunken mixing desk and MCI recorder machine. (www.circoperrotti.com)
The release comes in 12" vinyl and digital download. It is possible a CD production but still not certain.
It will be available in all major underground catalogs worldwide and through Surfer Joe web site.
Here it is folks! A video playlist of all of Unsteady Freddie's amazing videos from the 2012 Surfer Joe Festival in Livorno, Italy. Freddie deserves a standing ovation for his heroic efforts to document Surfer Joe! There are currently 93 (!) videos in this playlist, with a few more to be added once bands give their permission. I will update the playlist when Freddie publishes the remaining videos. Enjoy!
